of the city of san francisco and cervantes u.s.a. poet at the seminal in the magazine monger. i should underline these points by emphasizing the fact that before the columbus foundation has always been on the frontlines of the dissemination and distribution of the literature. not only the american book award, the book distributor in our early years. i also want to point out the question of the crisis, particularly chicano literature in arizona and throughout the united states is an issue that has been ignored shamefully and disgracefully by the mainstream of american literary life. we don't play that game, so we brought them together to talk about it. we are going to continue those associations and collaboration with the poetry center at san francisco state and of course continue with the american book award. my colleague, carla brundage will be joining me at the podium tonight. but before we get to introducing her, i'd like to begin our awards ceremony with an extraordinary book from the university of texas, super black american in sonoma. and they staked out a unique territory by dec
